Try It Out Tuesday #11 - Limited Supplies Challenge!

Okay, I love the ladies on Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design DT, but they have just gone too far in their request that I create a card with only TWO LAYERS and TWO EMBELLISHMENTS!! Helloooo!! Do you know me?!! It's like you've just asked me to lick the gutters or paint your fence!! I don't DO two layer cards!! LOL But I did, because that's just the kinda girl I am. Call me "cooperative!" LOL And I have to admit that it made making a two layer card a lot easier when I saw the sweet image that I got to work with. How cute is this little Anki’s Sweetheart Cathrine With Butterfly? So, I decided I'd try out a Swing (Flip Flop) Card. Clever, huh? I used the tutorial on SCS for the basic information, and revised it just a bit. I used my Rectangle Scalloped Nesties to emboss and partially cut out the swing portion of the card. Flippin' stroke of genius I tell ya!! I know it looks like I have a third layer in there behind Cathrine, but NO, NO, NO!! I used my Copics to color the embossed edge of my image that was created with my Rectangle Classic Nesties.

Here's what it looks like when you open it up. I tied the organdy swiss dot ribbon (my first embellishment) through one of the panels, and used my Sakura Quickie Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds (my second embellishment) to accent the main image. If you'd like to play along with us, or you'd like to check out what the other SCACD DT members created, check out Susana's Follow Your Heart SCACD Store Blog for all the deets!!

O you are a funny girl today. Cooperative though, I can't be your friend no more........ Give a Rebel yell. LOL In my post yesterday I mentioned that my card was HEAVY due to all the layers. I know it's not Tuesday but maybe I will try this out anyway

Awesome, Karolyn! Super take on the challenge.

Jean said...

Karolyn, I love your card - I am not sure I could do as well with using the Nesties for the scallop cut out bit. Must give it a try as yours looks so good!
